Elisangela Alves, who is a librarian at Fundação Abrinq in the fast-paced city of São Paulo and was one of the 2007 OCLC/IFLA Fellows, is higly involved with the promotion of the program Biblioteca Viva in Brazil. This program that was launched in 1995 by the non-profit organization Fundação Abrinq is comprised of 26 institutions that are engaged in disseminating and facilitating the reading habit among Brazilian children and adolescents from low-income families. Elisangela with another 11 contributors created the online space Rede de Leitura Biblioteca Viva for discussions, suggestions, proposals, and more in order to increase the awareness and reach of this important program. Bringing kids and adolescents to the reading world helps to keep the local culture alive and improve communities. Two thumbs up!
